RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) with music by composer MARK KORVEN (The Lighthouse, The Witch, Our House). Available everywhere now, the album features score music written by Korven for Constantin Film’s Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, the origin story of the massively popular Capcom video game. Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will be exclusively in movie theaters on Wednesday, November 24 via Screen Gems.
Of the score, composer MARK KORVEN says, “It was a joy working with Johannes Roberts on the Resident Evil origin story. I was constantly urged to be as inventive, wild and creepy as I desired. It became my own sonic terror playground."
Returning to the origins of the massively popular RESIDENT EVIL franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans. In RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.
Written & Directed by Johannes Roberts. Produced by Robert Kulzer, James Harris and Hartley Gorenstein. Executive producers are Martin Moszkowicz, Victor Hadida, Jeremy Bolt and Paul W.S. Anderson. The film stars Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen, Robbie Amell, Tom Hopper, Avan Jogia, with Donal Logue and Neal McDonough.
